1994 Diamondback Viper

Mid 1990's Viper, recently refurbished.

This is a mid 1990's Diamond Back  "Trail" Viper that was purchased used in 1999.  It is a '94 or 95 to the best of my knowledge.  Today, the bike is still my son's daily rider - nothing fancy, but a cool ride. The original decals read Diamond Back "Trail Comfort" on the top tube, Viper on the bottom tube, and "Trail" on the forks and rear of the frame - all in plum and light green.  When we bought this bike, it was outfitted like a traditional BMX racer, but the rear dropouts are mountain bike style, and the bike is set up for a rear derailleur (sp?).  Another member on the museum said he knew a kid that had one like this  - set up with bmx components, except a it had a derailleur and 5 speeds. 
It has one piece cranks and a one piece black 44T chainwheel (original, I think).  Wheels are aluminum, not original. Bulldog / Diacomp brakes (original) - Diamond Back seat collar (original) and Diamond Back stem (used, originally from another D B) - New Odyssey seat, new Wellgo pedals.  The last picture is not this bike, but has the same sticker style, except it says Race and not Trail.

Re: 1994 Diamondback Viper

this bike is my son's, and he has ridden it almost every day since he was 6 (he is 14).  I asked him if he wanted to sell it if i built him another...he said "no way i would sell that bike!" 

lots of memories with this one... glad you like it, but he and i would both be sorry if he sold it...
